From Seoul to Soweto, Mexico City to Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur to Guatemala, runners will be moved to action through a series of unique Nike We Run races, with every race showcasing the highlights of each city. From now until February 2015, Nike’s We Run Race Series will reach more than 140,000 runners in 14 races around the world.

Red was the color of Marina’s F1 pit building as 18,000 people gathered for the Nike We Run 2013. This year’s race saw an upheaval of concept, as Nike took the suggestions of runners and conceived an interactive and unique race for the individual; giving them the liberty to choose which path to take at different points of the race. The concept emphasizing the journey to completion rather than reaching the finish mark was refreshing, and I was in for a treat.
World Champion and multiple Olympic gold medallist Allyson Felix is in Singapore to cheer on runners at We Run SG 2013. She was at Raffles City on Saturday morning for a meet-up with aspiring young local runners from the Singapore Sports School.
Nike Run 2012 has outdone itself compared to last year. Not only are the routes well planned, with a good mix of city views and flora and fauna of the Kallang riverside area; the mix of flat road and upslope also brings about an interesting mix of difficulty level for some. The fringe activities that happened after the race were also well thought out to facilitate interaction with peers.
